The MANN Behind the Bisexual Character on ‘Revenge’


He’s cute, he’s quirky, he’s bisexual—and he’s one of the only characters on TV that goes both ways.

Actor Gabriel Mann has told the gay press that he’s thrilled about his bisexual character Nolan on “Revenge” because it gives him a wide range of possibilities.

He recently cut his hair a lot shorter for the ABC hit show, and he promises that the out-bi character will still remain as quirky as ever.

Speaking to the Gay Star, he said, “Nolan will still be quirk central, the mayor of quirk city. He describes himself as firmly a three on the Kinsey Scale which sort of puts him right in the middle of everything. I kind of thought that was really interesting as a character because we’ve had some really great, interesting gay characters on television, we’ve certainly had a hundred, million years of everybody being straight on TV too.”
